Case of the Week 94

The following objects were found in a Papanicolaou-stained urine specimen. The intact object measures approximately 170 µm long by 50 µm wide. Identification?

(I'd like to thank Drs. Gladwyn Leiman and Ann Berry for these beautiful images!)

Agreed. Wouldn't these be easier to identify in an unstained specimen?
